Dt: March 20, 2009

Dear Leaders, Blessed Central Families, Sisters and Brothers,

May God and True Parents’ Love guide you every second of each day. True Parents are now setting special conditions in the western part of the U.S. to redirect the culture here toward one of unselfishness and blessed family life.

True Parents Day, March 27, 2009

True Parents’ Day will be held at the Cheon Hwa Goong (Palace of Heavenly Harmony), in Las Vegas. It is a great blessing for America that True Parents are celebrating this significant occasion here. While we cannot all join together physically with True Parents for this special day, we hope that all our blessed families can feel connected to this celebration in heart and spirit.

Blessed Central Families and members can celebrate the Holy Day at their District or State Centers around the country. Please prepare an offering table and have your Morning Prayer and True Parents’ Day celebrations there. If anyone would like to make a gesture of financial support, it would be much appreciated. A donation of $100 per family (individuals - $50) is suggested, but what is most important is to give as you can from the heart. Donations should be made at the morning celebration. For sisters and brothers who will be unable to attend the Holy Day Celebration on the 27th, please mail your donation to arrive on that day at your District HQ. District Directors will send the Donations to the National HQ.

True Parents heart is always to give and educate the leaders from around the world at every opportunity they have. The True Parents Day Celebrations in Las Vegas are no exception.

Here is a breakdown of the Special Education Programs that have been planned around True Parents’ Day:

A special effort will be made to reach civic, social, government, clergy and business executives from Nevada. We would like each District to send one person as soon as possible to Las Vegas who is well qualified for working with existing Ambassadors for Peace and Clergy in Las Vegas to begin a process of securing “partners” in these fields. The District should arrange travel for the volunteer; accommodations and meals during the activity period in Las Vegas will be provided by Headquarters.

A special team of volunteers for outreach and networking should come to Las Vegas immediately. This team has been nicknamed the “Dream Team”.
